Sensation #4

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Resting a hand on your belly as your baby moves around inside you and wondering what kind of person she’ll be. Knowing that you’ll be there for her no matter what. Wishing that you could see her now, but knowing that the time will be soon.
Thinking about the first time her little baby hand grabs onto your finger, or the first time she really smiles at you, or the first time she says mommy and really means it.
Also part of that sensation with a little one moving around as much as she does in there is the sensation of having to pee every 15 minutes and being unable to get comfortable no matter what you do. Not so much fun then, but I guess I’ll deal with it. 🙂

Sensation #3

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

The absolute cold sweat of fear and dread you get when you find out that the reason your three year old son is soaking wet is because he fell into a pool while you were watching other people’s children (not that it makes a difference, but I think there were seven of them).

Needless to say, Jack is getting swimming lessons Mondays in September and October.

Sensation #2

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

Having acute pain and being able to do nothing about it. Being unable to get comfortable no matter what position you try to sit or lie in. Trying to breathe through the pain only to bring up all that steak you ate for lunch.

Then you rush to the hospital only to find out that you need to pass a kidney stone. Bleh. At 29. What’s wrong with the world?

Sensation #1

Icy hands or ice cubes on your back when you’ve got a horrible sun burn, your skin burns to the touch and you can’t bear to have anything touch it.

A little music obsession of mine

Friday, December 7th, 2007

I just (a couple of months ago now) got a new mp3 player, and my husband tossed a bunch of stuff on the player. One of the things he put on was the soundtrack to Kill Bill 2. The Kill Bill soundtracks have a lot of neat music on them, however I’ve become absolutely OBSESSED with one song in particular recently. Its called Tu Mira and its by Lole Y Manuel. Now I need to listen to more flamenco music. What an untapped treasure! Its sad and bouncy at the same time. I’ll have to put them into Pandora, which is an interesting take on internet radio. You plug in an artist or song that you like and it finds similar music that you might like. If you like it, you give it a thumbs up. If not, thumbs down. Sometimes it has interesting choices and I can’t really see the connection, but ah well. No one is perfect.

Ack. Its midnight. Time for bed.
